clunk

  1. Steering clunk 159 saloon

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    What causes this, seems like there has been numerous cases of this on this model. I'm yet to come across a definitive cause of it, I've just changed the upper wishbone ( which was buggered. To be honest), this solved some of the problem but the clunk still exists. I know the tie rod end...
  2. Odd clunk on the 75

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    As seems to be the case with some Alfas, you fix one thing and something else goes wrong. I've just changed the clutch slave cylinder - not for the faint-hearted and now I have an odd knocking sound/sensation. Sometimes, when you start the car up there is a knock from underneath somewhere...
  3. 159 q4 steering clunk, need a straight answer.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    hey, Basically have an intermittent clunk in the steering, when changing directions in the steering whenstationary or moving below 10kph. I've read a bit of threads on here, but i'm still a little bit swayed with what the problem may be. I've narrowed it down to a few items. Would the...
  4. Door Strap Clunk "Bodge" precision fix

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Yes its a bodge, Yes the strap will probably fail at some point.........................however for a 5 min investment on a rainy day I think represents excellent value. Method Degrease the area of all the optimistic lubricants you will have tried to unsuccessfully improve the noise. Take one...
  5. GT gearknob 'sticky' with a clunk

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I don't think it'd make a difference, but for the record she's a 2008 GT Cloverleaf JTDm (150 version, originally). The gearstick has taken to being very stiff when moving forward across the gate (1st, 3rd and 5th), and reluctant to engage into the slot. Conversely, moving the stick backwards...
  6. Help me diagnose please - road speed based clunk front left.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Good Morning Hive mind, So the good news is my 500 quid tatty spider Florence has an MOT! (no small feat I can assure you) The bad news is I have a new clunking noise. It is coming from the front left wheel/area. It is related to road speed and is it seems 1 "clunk" per wheel revolution. Not...
  7. Alfa 159 Front end knocking / Gearbox clunk pre-diagnosis

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Alfa 159 Front end rattling (Actually Rear-End?) See below for updated thread. Turns out it might be a rear-end rattling and not front-end. See vids below.
  8. big clunk, a rattle under the car and then alot of squeaking when braking....

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So.....in an (I think successful) effort to fully bed in my new performance friction pads on my new brembo discs, I finally managed on the motorway this evening to get the brakes up to a decent temperature and use them in an exuberant and gratuitous manner. By braking very firmly from somewhere...
  9. Clunk Clunk Clunk goes my GTV

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    HI Folks, I think I have a problem with the drive train in my 2001 CF2 GTV V6. Every so often the front left of the car clunks when the it is gear. When this is happening I can stop it by depressing the clutch. Releasing the clutch starts it up again. It will be like this for a week or so...
  10. Gear change CLUNK 1.9jtd

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I've already done a search for this but most of the threads are really old with no definitive answers. Just developed a clunk when changing up from 2-3 and 3-4. More noticeable when warmed up. It's when I do a quick gear change - if I do a smooth one then it doesn't happen. Odd...
  11. Metallic clunk when changing gear

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Have noticed this recently, particularly when engaging reverse, 1st or 2nd and then dropping the clutch. Most noticeable at low speed (and possibly high torque). I'm thinking engine mounts or prop shaft. Any ideas?
  12. 2.0 jtdm Gearbox clunk

    Alfa Giulietta
    My 2011 Giulietta 2.0 veloce has a clunky gearbox. I've had it 2 years now and there's always been a bit of a clunk but I didn't really want to open a can of worms as its out of warranty and I've been able to live with it for the last 20k miles. However recently it seems to be getting a bit...
  13. mito clunk!

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi folks, got a dreadful noise coming from the mito, when I drive off, go round corners, brake.. anything actually apart from drive in a straight line at a steady pace. Any ideas?? Replaced all suspension parts that I can think of. Also, just started.. but when I turn the car on, there is a...
  14. Clunk on full lock

    Alfa Giulietta
    When on full lock at low speed I get a clunk & it almost feels like the front end is skipping sideways. Happens in both forward and reverse. Convinced I was going to clump the walls in a particularly tight multi storey car park yesterday. It's a QV Line 170 MA TB TCT & only 9 months old. Any...
  15. N/s clunk + click

    Alfa GTA
    I have owned the car a few months , when I bought it the owner showed me that the car made a click noise when pulling away . It clicks more often now when pulling away and also clunks all the time on bad roads , there is some vibration through the steering wheel when cruising , I was thinking...
  16. alfa gt clunk from suspension

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    A couple of months ago I hit a bad pot hole at about 30 mph on a country lane... ever since there has been a loud clunk when driving over small bumps or uneven roads. It isn't the usual squeak or creak that I've had on previous 147's / 156's etc... it sounds/feels like its coming from behind...
  17. Clunk from below

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey Guys Picked up a beautiful 159 Q4 from the dealer on Friday :thumbup: only to return it on Sunday:depressed:. There is what can only be described as a clunk coming from under the car. It is apparent on initial start up and then seems to be accelerator dependant. Whenever I touch the gas...
  18. Loud clunk when changing gear quick

    Alfa GTA
    Not sure if anyone will know what this is, but it was quite apparent in this afternoons drag race between me, a gee in his dropped Audi A4 and an R6. When taking off from the line and hitting second gear quite quickly there was an almighty clunk each time from somewhere. I've heard the before...
  19. One off Clunk under heavy braking

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hey Folks, took my GTV out of storage after a few weeks, getting used to the car again, I had to apply some heavy braking and there was a nasty clunk from the front nearside. It only did it once as I have not been brave enough to try again. In the past 5 months its had: New Brake Pads (PF...
  20. Brake Pedal/TCT Clunk

    Alfa Giulietta
    A month in & I've noticed a small 'clunk' from the centre console when I depress the brake pedal whilst in Park. It's clearly releasing the 'lock' that prevents you changing gear when not on the brake pedal but I can't say that I'd heard it until yesterday. I assume it's entirely normal & a...
